Come learn some tips, tricks and techniques to make better video! Whether its to document your project and promote Protospace, or show Grandma your child’s latest triumph, we all appreciate “good” video.
Our resident guru, Steve Tsuida, artist, designer, geek, and a professional videographer, has put together a 2-hour workshop on how to elevate your video skills… letting you make more shots that you can be proud of. The workshop will include a chance to shoot footage of Protospace or projects, and get critiques or hints immediately.
We’ve all enjoyed Steve’s work for Protospace (such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbFtyHsOjPM) and other clients, and this is your chance to up your game. Steve’s YouTube channel is at https://www.youtube.com/user/stsuida/videos.
